Kitty Retirement Village in Ladson has joined thousands of animal welfare organizations across North America that list their homeless pets on Petfinder, the online leader in responsible pet parenting.
Petfinder has been committed to animal welfare and the organizations dedicated to the cause since its founding in 1996, and has the largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet.
Approximately 14,000 rescues and shelters leverage Petfinder's website, Petfinder.com, and mobile apps to connect homeless pets with prospective pet parents. To get started, potential adopters simply enter their search criteria and a list is returned that ranks the pets by proximity to the location entered.
Adoptions are carried out by the animal placement group that is caring for the pet, following their best practices and policies.
Petfinder.com was established in 1996 as a grassroots project by Jared and Betsy Saul to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets. Since its inception, the site has facilitated more than 20 million adoptions, making it the most life-saving initiative in animal welfare.
